This last weekend I had a goat butchered for the first time, and I am excited about trying new recipes. I had always raised goats for fiber before, and just had chickens for meat with the occasional beef. So this is a new experience.
I had it cut and packaged in a variety pack way. Shoulder with bone and without, leg with bone and without, some ground and so on. I have a lot of meat cuts to choose from. What are some goat meat tips and ideas?

Liz, oh that sounds wonderful. Goat is one of our favorite sorts of meat right now. It is less gamey-tasting than lamb, but it has a richness that really satisfies the palate. Here are some past posts and recipes; check out the goat tacos!
